Jon Satava - X-Guard

The X-Guard is an advanced position used for an arsenal of offensive techniques. It’s a powerful guard to sweep with as you can unbalance your opponent in every direction and often go directly into a pass. You can use the X-Guard to attack submissions like triangles, omoplatas, and armbars, and it’s tricky to pass, as your opponent’s base and balance are immediately compromised. That’s why many of today’s top competitors employ the X-Guard and its variations to subdue advancing passers and attack from the bottom.

Jon Satava is one of those top competitors and black belt under Marcelo Garcia, the man who brought the X-Guard to the competition forefront.
